    There’s a homeless lady that makes a shelter with the park benches on a few steps away from this sculpture… I guess MPD asked if she saw anything? I’d imagine you’d have to make a bit of noise to pry that chess board loose.

    This is right next to the Canadian embassy. Surely it was caught on camera and a suspect will be caught soon?

    I’m guessing the worthless vandals didn’t play a lot of chess growing up.

    Some punks just making trouble. (Blame the parents of those punks) BTW, Bobby Fischer died in January 2008.
